Art of Witchcraft




Celebrate the eve of halloween at the National Gallery

From shrieking hags to seductive sorceresses, witches have cast a powerful spell upon the imagination, unleashing the creativity of artists such as Goya and Salvator Rosa.

Artist Lachlan Goudie leads a very personal and ghoulish tour of the collection. Enjoy some close looking at paintings, and find out about Lachlan’s own father, the Scottish artist Alexander Goudie, who believed he was possessed by a witch, prompting him to paint many images of his demon at the helm of a gruesome tribe of hags, warlocks, and resuscitated corpses.
